Review - Gush: The Official Guide to G-Spot & Female Ejaculation

Thursday, October 06, 2011


Months ago Camilla Lombard from Good Vibrations sent me Gush: The Official Guide to G-Spot & Female Ejaculation (


Up until this morning, it was still in its wrapper in a pile of dusty videos on my DVD player. Since it is gushing outside, it seems an appropriate day to sit down and have a look at it.

Dr. Carol Queen hosts the video with Michelle Meow of Swirl Radio—in a staged interview where callers phone in with questions about female ejaculation. Queen answers with cheerful encouragement, her remarks followed by realistic and unhurried and diverse (female/female, male/female, solo) sex scenes featuring female ejaculation.

Readers, this is such a good video—so frank, relaxed and sincere. It is a Good Vibrations’ policy to name its in-house merchandise “The Ultimate” or “The Official” but what is so pleasing about these products is that they don’t have the strident quality that many products proclaiming themselves as such do, providing the most truthful and up-to-date information without bullying or loftiness. Queen, the very personification of Good Vibrations’ “clean and well-lighted” policy is a wonderful host.

Queen is somewhat vague about where female ejaculate comes from (the jury is still out on this, some studies do suggest it is emitted in part from the bladder but is chemically different than urine) but in the DVD’s extras, she makes a great point: a lot of focus on the source of ejaculate subtly reinforces the fact that urine is dirty. Queen states that urine is both sterile and that all sorts of mammals use urine in their mating play. “We’re just being mammals,” she says, with her charming snaggle-toothed grin.

Queen also gives a fantastic pleasure focused anatomy lesson in the DVD extras, noting the homologous elements between female, male and intersex genitals. As she says, it has not been established if all women have a G-spot (known scientifically as the prostata feminina) but since it is homologous to the male prostate and all post pubescent boys have one, it stands to reason that on a physiological level, all women have one as well. But as Queen notes since there is little funding put towards research on this matter and most doctors study reproductive anatomy in school rather than pleasure potential, we will all have to wait along with her, “on the edge of our chairs”, for conclusive evidence.
